Just testing server code then ... 

... set a CA or SC to overfly earth at maxwarp, as soon as you touch the
planet call in lots of practice robots.  They all tractor you, nailing
you to the ether.

(a) the robots fire at where you will be assuming you would do maxwarp
without being tractored.  Yeah, that's sorta expected, given their lack
of logic.

(b) the cumulative effect of all those tractors is to reduce your
forward motion to almost zero, despite the fact that they are pulling
from all around you.  If the vectors were additive, I would expect to
keep moving.

(c) when you die, you are released from tractor, springing forward as
you explode.  Surprised me.  Where have I been these last five years to
miss such an odd effect?  ;-)
